Space object that passed through Earth likely came from aliens, says Harvard professor

Must read


According to Harvard professor Avi Loeb, Loeb’s new book Extraterrestrial examines the cigar-shaped object named Oumuamua which flew over Earth in 2017 at 196,000 mph and the professor believes the origin of this object to be foreigners. He spoke to CBS News about this belief and said that scientists did not collect enough data on the object as it passed through our planet.

“At first people thought, ‘Well, it must be a boulder, just like any asteroids or comets that we’ve seen in the solar system before,’ but as they got more data on it, it seems very strange, ”Loeb told CBS News. “It’s possible that there’s a lot of space junk out there or it’s a probe. We don’t know because we haven’t collected enough data, enough evidence.”

Loeb said he said this so that the next time an object like the one from 2017 passes, scientists will examine it more carefully. He said the object didn’t look like a comet, what some called it, but behaved like something with “extra thrust”. NASA said in 2018 that it was “the first object ever seen in our solar system that is known to have originated elsewhere,” but said the object’s origin was unknown.

Loeb writes in Extraterrestrial that the object was probably some sort of debris from a extraterrestrial technology from many light years away, according to CBS News. Hopefully, the aliens who got rid of them are the kind kind, not the bust-out-of-your-chest kind.The Harvard professor said scientists should look for “potential messages in a bottle” with objects like Oumuamua instead of focusing on radio signals as evidence of aliens. He also said that these types of ideas are not popular in the scientific community and are “out of the mainstream” and “shouldn’t be.”

“We need to be open-minded and look for evidence rather than assuming that everything we see in the sky has to be rocks,” Loeb said.
